Dear Me…..

Dear Me,

Someday, you’re going to look back at this hectic time and laugh. All this craziness, this running around, this working three jobs while taking 15 credits at school is going to be pretty darn hilarious. Granted, it might not seem like it right now, but I promise. It’ll get better. How do I know that? Well, because I’m you (duh) and you always look at the bright side of things.

Remember last year? You were just as busy and you survived. Life might seem monotonous, fast-paced, and stressed-to-the-max, but everything comes to an end. And pretty soon, this constant go-go-go will end.

Just think, in two weeks one job will be done for the season. That’s one less place for you to go, one less thing for you to answer to, and one less—I know you’re thinking paycheck; STOP IT—thing for you to squeeze into your already jam-packed schedule. Soon, you’ll have more time to focus on school and more time to spend with the people you care about.

In the meantime, focus on what makes YOU happy. Say no once in awhile, take time out for yourself, do what you love. Remember that bike? Get back on it; no more excuses. Make the time to put some rubber to the pavement because the harder you pedal, the faster your frustrations disappear. And if all else fails, breathe. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, let it out, and go back at it. After you open your eyes of course.
